It was recommended to go visit this church by a friend that comes to Rome allot. He was right! The church was amazing! I enjoyed it much more than the Sistine Chapel but maybe that was because it was not full of people. You could actually sit in quiet and enjoy the splendor that this church has to offer. I worry that too many good reviews will put this church on the map and ruin it for others. Go check it out but keep it a secret. ;-)

Even if you are not a lover of Baroque, you should not miss this church. The trompe l´oeil ceiling by Pozzo is really magnificent. Funny is also the non-existent but nicely painted cupola.

Cuppola (the dome) was never finished, instead it was painted on a flat ceiling. The painter managed to create an illusion of a dome (if seen from the church entrance). The dome picture becomes more distorted as you approach the middle of the church. Very amusing.

A beautiful church with amazing paintings in the ceiling. Trompe l'oeil are astonishing. Do not miss this one.
